Andrew I have a 331 which was fitted originally with a fixed lh prop. I have fitted a Bruntons Autoprop and took the opportunity to specify mine to be right hand. I did this because my regular berth is port side to and it is very handy when going in bows first as the powerful prop wash kicks the stern in nicely. As far as the engine and gearbox is concerned you can have either lh or rh it makes no difference as they are the same ratio, if you do change you obviously also have to swap the cables to the morse controls. I do find the Autoprop matches boat very well but you have to stay alert to what it is doing. Robin Shaw (Ambassador)
